Best Health Food Shop, the independent health store in East Street, welcomed the UK’s leading nutritionist in Women’s Health ,Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD to unveil the new name and store front.
The shop, formerly known as Sugar & Spice, has been rebranded and relaunched by new owner’s Len Glenville and his partner Mel Beard. Len is the son of the well-known nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD and both he and Mel have wide natural health industry experience, having previously been actively involved with the growth and development of the premium supplement brand, The Natural Health Practice Ltd as well as the Glenville Nutrition Clinics and also Dr Glenville’s highly respected education and lecturing programmes. With all this industry knowledge to draw on the shop is going to be teeming with health and nutrition knowledge and is already proving a great natural health resource for the local community.
The new owners have ambitious plans for the business and will be stocking a more extensive product range and also books on nutrition and healthy living. They are always looking for new and exciting products and have particular interest in vegan and sugar free foods as well as sourcing local produce where possible
The shop now has two fully qualified nutritionists who work in the store offering advice and support to customers. So totalled together, although the shop identity is new, the whole team have over three decades of combined industry knowledge at their fingertips - which is great news for Shoreham by Sea and the surrounding areas.
Offering natural health and wellbeing education for the community is also a priority for Len and Mel, and so drawing on their industry experience and supported by Dr Glenville they will be offering nutritional talks, workshops, cookery demonstrations and other informative classes.
With the business set to expand virtually with a new website and a social media presence Len and Mel are working hard to ensure they can support their customers online and well as instore.
Mel and Len said: “It was great to get together many of the people who have helped us get this far to help celebrate the opening of the new look business. This is an exciting opportunity for us and we can see huge potential in the enterprise. We encourage people in Shoreham by Sea to come along and see what changes we have made to the business and to discuss how we can help with their health and well being.
We are really grateful to Dr Marilyn Glenville for taking the time to join our celebrations.
I also want to highlight the support we have had from Joy Green at Barclays, she was hugely helpful and supportive and helped us through the whole process, and went above and beyond for us for which we are both eternally grateful!”
Barclays Business Relationship Manager Joy Green said: “It has been great to see how Mel and Len have used their complementary expertise in starting their exciting enterprise. I am pleased to have helped them achieve their ambitions and I look forward to working with them long into the future.”
